RPOTD – Twilight hours in Toronto

I had a long day at work that extended to the twilight hours today.

These are some snappies taken today while on my way home from work. All were taken with my Samsung S6, with HDR enabled.

RPOTD – The Noreaster Touches Niagara

Well, Toronto got spared from most of the snow that is hitting the US  and Canadian east coasts. The same could not be said for Niagara Falls, which already got 5-10″ and is still expecting another five more inches overnight.  

These two pics (above and below) were caught with my Samsung S6 while on my way to troubleshoot issues at a branch office.

Safe driving, everyone!

Is Film Making a Comeback?

I was just talking about this with Jon today and realized that the news release from Kodak is almost 2 weeks old.  Sure, this is old news now…but things in the old days took time to develop.  Like film!

Where am I going with this?  Well back to Kodak, the company has announced that it will be manufacturing Ektachrome film!

To the film enthusiasts out there, this is good news, because this is Kodak’s first slide film in the company’s film products for what was a very long time.

Me, being a Fujifilm fan, am quite delighted by this news.  I really want to try something different than Velvia as I have never had great chances to shoot with slide film as far as I can recall.  Fujifilm’s Velvia is a great product, but using the Ekta will make for a great shoot out!

We’ll keep you posted when we get our first batch.

Earworm: Bacon Ft. Ty Dolla $ign – Nick Jonas

I am putting this song up as an earworm for one reason and one reason alone.  It’s called “Bacon”.  Other than that, I really don’t care much for this song, but maybe you will. Enjoy!
